Howdy Jem,
    Well we've exceeded my expertise, I'm just a novice who's
been exploring the key mappings lately trying to get bash's
readline editing functions and an editor (lpe) to work like I
    I noticed in the ash man page that both shells can use
/etc/profile and ~/.profile so anything done there would
be reflected in both shells.
    Is there any chance that ash is a link to bash?
'ls -l /bin/ash /bin/bash' will show same size if so.
    bash readline sources /etc/inputrc and/or ~/.inputrc to
do some keyboard remapping, but I don't think ash does.
    stty also does some mapping, 'stty -a' will show you what.
    The tools I've found for tracking down the mappings are:
1) stty's lnext function which is typically mapped to ^v or ^q,
    where ^==control.
2) dumpkeys especially the '-f' switch, but don't ignore the others
3) showkey -s -k -a all show different representations of the info
4) getkeycodes gives you another view of the scancode to keycode
5) bash's bind -d (for bash1) or -p (for bash2) will show bash
    I hope you'll share the answer when you find it.

I wish you luck,

1. Need DEC Keyboard, keyboard mappings?

    I will be telnetting to various VAX/VMS boxes and need a DEC keyboard,
select, find, remove, do keys etc.  Do I have to remap the keys?  Is there a
terminal emulator out there that remaps the keys automatically?  Thanks for
any help.
